    I've seen it before with mine. I think it's from the little bit of liquid from their poo/urate that kinda disperses and dries.

    No. This should not occur. A clear small puddle can be "normal", not snow white. Perhaps it will be best to schedule an appointment with an experienced veterinarian, have the leo checked and discuss diet(including supplements).

    Thank you cricket4u. I am gonna bring them both in for a checkup and fecal culture. Hey i have a question for you im not finding a solid answer on with gutloading and dusting. I am gutloading 48 hours with mazuri high calcium diet in one tank. in the other my feeders have zoo meds bearded dragon food, collard greens, and dandelion greens 24/7. Should I be dusting with reptivite and repti cal wd3 with that gutload. I am totally open to using t rex as well if it is easier to come up with a dust scedual or no dusting at all. Just want an experienced aswer with the products and obviously good health with my geckos. I plan to run the subject by the vet as well. I recall reading you are familair or use yourself the mazuri and trex (i could be wrong but i thought it was you). I am also open to switching to albers puoltry food vs the bearded dragon food if it helps me find the dusting answer. What would you recomend for me. I do plan to get bigger tanks eventually once the geckos get a bit bigger so i can run UVB lights but htat will be in the next six months. For now i just feel usure with the dusting.

    Hi Powayrock,

    Hey i have a question for you im not finding a solid answer on with gutloading and dusting.
    That's because it's not a one size fits all type of deal, many variables.

    Just want an experienced aswer with the products and obviously good health with my geckos
    I do understand and this is why I recommended taking your leos to the vet so that the vet can examine and put them on a diet to fit their individual needs.

    I recall reading you are familair or use yourself the mazuri and trex (i could be wrong but i thought it was you).
    Correct, that's me. See, I do not believe that you can feed and supplement them all the same, at least not in my experience. Genetics, activity level, how they are housed, age, what they insects fed must be taken in consideration. My point is that what works for mine, may not work for yours and I do not want to endanger your leos with my schedules. I am a minimalist when it comes to supplements, I'll tell you that much.

    I am also open to switching to albers puoltry food vs the bearded dragon food if it helps me find the dusting answer.
    Huge problem in the reptile industry, DIET. The products sold are all over the place. One contains too much protein, the other too much vitamin A or too much fiber...... On top of that the few insect studies are pretty much inconclusive and not very reliable in my opinion. The numbers are not adding up for some reason.

    The main feed that I use belongs to a friend and unfortunately he is not very cooperative with sharing. On my own, I've been trying some products and I have not been happy so far. I know that this is not what you want to hear, but it's the sad truth. Hopefully the vet will have some solutions that will work for you.

    Your reply is much appreciated. Thank you for your speedy response. I will take your advise and get them checked out and see what the vet recomends. Though i am newly educated with little experience , what i have learned and read I feel I should be using supplements very sparingly and seldom on top of the gutload. Most likely I will run UVB sooner than later with bigger enclosures. Seems to be the best way for me to get the peice of mind regarding this matter. thanks again cricket for you you've been great help!

    Update. We have a white spot again. 50% clearer but still opaque white. This time it is with the poop. The poop and urate look normal. its the fluid that comes with most potties just drys whitish. Vet is for saturady @ 2pm. So hopefully get to bottom of this.

    As far as urates being white, they are, once dried they show a little yellow. Is that normal or does that suggest too many vitamins

    Slightly yellow dried urates could be a sign of too many vitamins, PowayRock. How about using no Reptivite at all this week?

    Please put this on your vet list for Saturday.
